Mu Pan was born 1976 in Taiwan as a child of a military family his favorite artistic subjects are the history of China mixed with fantastic terror scenarios of warriors fighting with dogs, frogs and other strange-animal-human mutations. It brings to mind characters from a painting by Hieronymus Bosch in a disjointed modern world.


Toad Licking by John Haverty

John Haverty was born in Boston, Massachusetts,but travelled through thirty-four countries on five continents before his twenty-third birthday. He states that these experiences abroad helped shape and influence the diverse body of work that he currently illustrates and paints. “When it comes to art-making, both my process and subject matter are inspired by what I am deeply afraid of. I despise the dark, but am a nocturnal worker. Solitude unsettles me, but I deliberately work in lonely environments. Much of the imagery in my work has a nautical feel, yet I have an irrational fear of water, with all of its mystery, its alien creatures, the threat of drowning to death. Paper is the space in which I feel most free to confront, explore, even play with these taboo fascinations.”
